Thumbs up Golden Gate Bridge Toll

Just before Easter we crossed the Golden Gate in our dinghy. When we arrived back at our So Cal home base last week, we had a letter waiting for us telling us that we were delinquent in paying the toll for crossing the bridge. DW contacted them by email & explained the situation. She offered that we would be more than willing to pay the toll, but would really appreciate a waiver of the penalty fees. They were kind enough to accommodate that request. Like to 'publicly' thank them & warn others who are enjoying extended travels and might be using the bridge.

Did you have a transponder on the toad? Not sure how California systems work, but EZPass needs a transponder and if for some reason the system doesn't read the transponder they look up your license tag number and if you are in good standing, they just charge your account that way.

GG Bridge states they mail an invoice with no added fees. Many of us who live in the not-so-golden state, don't have bridge accounts or Fastrak and just pay from the mailed invoice.

For those from out of the area, GG Bridge, outbound is free (there are no operating toll booths). Bay Bridge, outbound is free, with operating toll booths. Antioch, Carquinez and Benicia are all inbound free, with operating toll booths in the outbound lanes. The GG is the only bridge with "pay by mail" invoice mailed to the registered owner based on a license plate scan.

From their website:

Toll Invoice If customers do not open a FasTrak or a License Plate Account, or make a One-Time Payment, tolls are assessed using the License Plate number of the vehicle and a Toll Invoice is mailed to the registered owner, with no added fees. The Toll Invoice must be paid within 21 days to avoid Toll Violations and fines. To avoid potential late fees, the FasTrak, License Plate, or One-Time payment options are recommended. Read more

When we crossed the bridge we were definitely watching for a toll booth. There was a lot of construction (we actually missed a turn due to it) and traffic. Presuming something is posted on the bridge, we totally missed it or we would have had our mail checked before we headed back to our home base.

Canadians that get "tolled by plate" do not receive the bill until
they get home several months later.
The late fees can mount up very quickly.

When we were going down the Florida Keys we went through several
toll areas. We had to monitor the website constantly to see how much
we had to pay.

We cannot get the EZpass.

Anyone can buy a Sunpass at Publix or Walgreen's in Florida. The Sunpass works in EZPass states and North Carolina. I use my NC quick pass more in Florida than NC.
